The BEST OZ Podcast!!

I have been listening to Down The Yellow Brick Pod for over a year now. It is my go to podcast in the car, and I’ve even gotten my fiancé in on it as well. Tara and Em Kay are so eloquent and knowledgeable on all things OZ, and they include some fabulous Ozian guests as well. I always learn something new when I listen to the podcast, and it genuinely feels as if I’m sitting with friends spilling all of the Oz tea! I have been absolutely obsessed with the Wicked years season. So much so that I recently joined the Patreon to gain more access to their content. 110/100. Highly recommended!!

Down the yellow brick road podcast

I love your wizard of Oz podcast and the different topics you talk about. And also grew up watching the wizard of Oz.

Great podcast for oz fans

Grew up loving the Wizard of Oz and the entire world of Oz as s kid, and have been enjoying falling back in love with Oz via this podcast. Their deep dives are amazing and their discussions on core Oz memories such as the MSG shows, Return to Oz, and more have me feeling super nostalgic!
